‘Fine art pho­tog­ra­pher Anup has un­der­taken mul­ti­ple as­sign­ments for

Na­tional Ge­o­graphic, and has been named as one of the best wildlife pho­tog­ra­phers in the world by var­i­ous pub­li­ca­tions. He be­lieves his im­ages lend a voice to the men­tal state of wild an­i­mals. ‘ There is an au­then­tic­ity to their per­son­al­i­ties,’ he says. ‘ To me, the men­tal state of a wild an­i­mal is nei­ther cov­ered by a mask nor adul­ter­ated by hu­man in­flu­ence.’ Anup tries to be ac­cepted by the an­i­mals, ob­tain­ing a level of in­ti­macy that shows in his work. ‘I try to sense what might be on their minds’, he re­veals. www.anup­shah.com
